The SIS Summer Abroad ASEAN Studies Program consists of two study sites – Malaysia and Indonesia. This 3-credit seminar program examines the impact of political development and economic modernization on human security; transnational labor migration; the roles of the US, Japan, China, and India on regional economic integration; and other related topics.
SIS can also help students who participate in the seminar obtain an internship with a partner organization in the ASEAN region. The internship experience is not an integrated part of the seminar program and can be done for credit, or on a non-credit bearing basis for MA students only who wish to complete their professional experience requirement. A program guide, a list of potential internship organizations, and the program application are available below:
